Hello, I'm new to this forum, I was hoping to maybe get some first hand experiences. I bought an e-cig the other day, so far it's been 3 days with no tobacco.
Basically one of the main triggers for me trying to give up was going to the gym and realising that it wasn't my physical fitness that was holding me back from working harder but my inability to breathe in enough oxygen, I kept feeling light headed and struggling to breathe properly, but my body felt fine and able to carry on. Anyway, i've tried the usual methods, cold turkey and patches in the past, but obviously I failed, then I came across e-cigs and thought i'd give them a try. It was the fact they deal with the addiction AND the habit in one go.
Right so here's my question, I haven't noticed any real improvement in my breathing, my chest still feels a bit heavy (I have asthma, I know i'm a dumbass) and I still need my asthma inhaler, I know it's only been a couple of days, I was wondering if anybody else had been in a similar situation, I'm not sure if my lungs don't like the fact i'm still breathing something in, even though it's not rancid smoke, or whether im going through that funny period where my body and lungs are still adjusting to not being so abused. I'm going to give it a couple of weeks anyway, but be nice to know of anyone elses experiences, especially those with asthma.
